WoWUI Latest Mods
New Members Welcome!----------------------------

Hello! Welcome to the Empire! As you are reading this, I'm sure you must be very curious as to what we are all about. We are the Starter Edition Empire, a group for starter edition players. We have spent years making World of Warcraft better place for people who play the game for free. Over the years we've accumulated thousands of members who've come and gone.

We employ several methods of making starters happy, we have giant hunts, yeti hunts, even dragon hunts. For low levels we take large groups of people to fight down the dead scar, see how far we can get. Not only are we into combat, but we also enjoy races, games of hide and seek, pet battle tournaments, and much more!

We also have PVP wars, however official battles occur only at a certain level tier so that everyone can sync up with one another. Also, the majority of our battles occur at level 20 because us, being the Starter Edition Empire, do most of our things at the starter level cap which is 20. Anything official in regards to PVP takes place at three tiers, level 20 (the starter cap) and at the current level cap of the game. (Now 100)

You can stop a character from getting experience, and therefore stop them from leveling beyond twenty for the purpose of war game participation, by talking to an npc in Orgrimmar known as Slahtz. See more details at http://www.wowhead.com/npc=35364/slahtz

We use the abandoned Ruins of Gilneas for a variety of events, which is our HQ. We call Gilneas City, "Empire City" or "EC" for short, and use it to hold races, dueling tournaments, and mass gatherings for many different kinds of events-Races, Dueling Tournaments, and the newly created PVP wars, eventually. It is also our socialization spot.

If you are interested in joining us, you will be able to be at any level of involvedness that you want to be. For instance, if you don't even want to be a part of our group, you can still join our open raids, open raids take place starting from Falconwing Square or Tranquillien and are the most frequent of raids for the purpose of recruiting. If you would like to join us for open raids only, simply register your character at the top right of this website. Joining at this level is free, and without consequence. However, just registering your character will no longer lead to whispers, as our numbers on this website have grown too large for that. Instead, a news post will go up whenever an official event is held.

If you do not want to register your character to the website, you don't need to! We try to hold daily open raids from Falconwing Square or Tranquillien as often as we can, and we tend to do so at later hours, when the school/work day is generally at an end. Right now it's 9:00 pm realm time for the realm Dalaran, in other words Eastern Time.

However, if you would like to be more involved in the Empire there are three Career Categories that you will be able to join. The three Career Categories are: Economy, Military, and Government. Choosing a career should be carefully thought out, and keep in mind that the Empire works practically, and is always ready to bend to your schedule.

For more details on Careers, see the descriptions below. If you choose a career, please message me in the forums at top left after you register to the site, alternatively you can either message me in-game (Enkindle-Dalaran) or send me in-game mail.

What the Empire Means to Me

Sorry if I get a bit corny at times, I like to role play a little bit, but I'm also pretty passionate about doing this because I'm passionate about helping people and I think just because someone doesn't have time or money in their lives they should still be able to make friends in wow and feel happy with their game play. So please forgive me as I'm about to get a bit philosophical and/or passionate on you.

The Empire is divided, like humanity, and within it, members who desire a goal are united with others who believe in similar goals, so that they can work together. Conflict is natural, but the Empire is a mutual agreement between each of its sects that respect is always necessary. Competition is simply not as effective as collaboration is, as the Empire has proven. We have done things no one man could have done on his own, no matter how much loot or experience he raises for himself. This entire game would never even have existed, nor would the mass implementation of electricity, or the standard of living we all enjoy, if it were not for collaboration; working together.

The symbol of the Empire, the dream of the Empire, recognizes that every single person matters. The ideal member of the Empire, is aware that he/she matters, and so does everyone else. Strength, that is what the Empire is. The Empire is testament to a way of life, it is a way of honoring humanity. Implied in unity, is forgiveness, understanding, communication, of both ourselves, and of others. After all, there are such similarities between feelings that we are able to understand them. What you can feel, I could feel, were I in similar circumstances. While we must honor our differences, there is no reason why we can't work not necessarily as companions but as a group with a common goal.

In my long years of running the Empire, I've encountered many situations in which people have had detrimental experiences in their life. I've talked people through suicide attempts, I've dealt with death threats to both myself and other members, I've experienced working through severe discrimination and prejudice, and the boundless ignorance of my fellows. Yet still, I do not allow such experiences to taint my love for others or for this game. I still consider this a goal worth pursuing, because I do not globalize the negativity of the actions of the few. Were I to do so, I would be affected, and the influence of such negativity is not something I would appreciate.

Instead I would like to stress the good the Empire has done. Granted as unique as it is it is but a humble guild. However, despite our simplicity and humility, we have still built friendships online that have endured to this day. We've inspired people, that even goals set high can be reached. We've built spirit, fighting impossible odds, our regular dragon hunts symbolize this, that even low levels if they work together can defeat level 50 elite dragons with ease. We've built identity, to be found within our sub-groups that have come and passed. The Starter Edition Empire is a valuable experience that can help you feel like a better and more capable person if you let it.

What is the Starter Edition Empire?

The Empire itself is less of a solid whole as it is divided under a common banner. Bear in mind of course, that every individual is different, and some individuals can't be expected to get along with others and even some can't be expected to permanently get along with anyone. This is okay. In the Empire we celebrate individuality, by allowing everyone space to follow their own path. While the Empire does utilize an overarching governmental system to maintain order, its only real power is to provide options, what you choose to do is in the end of course, up to you.

Everyone follows their own path, we completely support any team or individual from branching out and leaving the Empire, in some cases the government may even provide added support to such groups for the reason that we generally dominate recruiting potential at times when we are active. Such groups might have a hard time recruiting on their own, and to this end we may or may not provide our services.

Now, I've been talking about Teams but I've failed to mention what exactly Teams are. Well, Teams are basically smaller groups of people within the Empire that share common interests or goals of some sort, for example: role playing, player versus player, questing, trading, racing, hide and seek, dueling tournaments, and more. Teams may share in several or all of those, some teams may not be based on such interests, other teams may have formed because of good chemistry between members or other such reasons based on personality. Teams are literally any group or guild that would follow the Empire's government and share in the Empire's banner. Similar to the United States being divided into many states, and yet one nation.

Not only is the Empire comprised of teams, however, we also gladly accept those who would choose to join as individuals or not officially form a team. That is perfectly okay. Some individuals even go on to become Champions of the Empire, or Mercenaries.

The Point System

Team points are awarded to a team during missions from the Empire's Government. Once points are exchanged by the leadership of a team they are subtracted from a team's current Team Points (listed in that teams description window in the Community Column.

They may be exchanged for gold, the current rate is 10 gold per point per player, after team points are subtracted the gold will be mailed to each team member on the roster within the realm of Dalaran.

Team Points may also be spent on recommendations by the government for Champions to accomplish missions for them. Likewise, through the gold option a team may hire mercenaries for ideally about the same price, although the mercenaries themselves decide their hiring cost so this is subject to change.

Team Points may also be exchanged for a team's political influence in the government. In order to gain points a team must work for the government or a government official, so this political influence is well-earned. However, it is up to the counselor they intend to exchange points with how much this will affect their decision.

Government Careers

The Empire's Government oversees and maintains the Empire. It is not as important as recruiting, but it becomes more crucial as more members join in that as there are more recruiters, recruiting becomes more reliably taken care of without having to worry about some people not being able to make events and things like that. At times when there is a surplus of recruiters, government's importance is especially pertinent and relevant.

While it's the Economy's function to support the Empire's membership, it is the government's job to unite the Empire membership. It is the Government that allows for cooperation and unity among the Empire's underlying sects, in order to accomplish such massive feats as Global Wars (War games between Teams that take place across all of Azeroth at once), Occupations of hostile npc territory such as Stromgarde (which would open up more real estate to found new large scale cities under the Empire), Grand Tournaments (For Races, Dueling, among other games), Invasions of capital cities and entire zones, and other such large scale goals that would not be possible without excruciatingly high numbers, most of which may involve dividing into different areas, realms, and/or times to avoid server crashes.

Not only does the government organize, but it also tends to resolve conflict between players. In the case of such things of death threats or suicide attempts we report such things directly to Blizzard and do our best to work in conjunction with or out of the way of the proper authorities. However in terms of minor conflict such as "territory" disputes (or at least what we would label on our maps as a certain Team's area for the sake of our events) or other minor conflicts between members, we handle those. Sometimes this can result in reallocation of members to other teams or possibly even government or military services to people who feel they are being treated unfairly.

There are two levels of government: Councilor (those who make large scale suggestions for the Empire and its Teams) and Official (those who work to resolve minor scale conflict and resolve other problems on a lower scale).

Economy Careers

The Empire's Economy Careers are comprised of two sections: earners of gold, and earners of glory. Both of these things are motivators that allow the Empire to attract members and thus maintain itself.

The Gold Economy is based in the Merchant District of Empire City (Gilneas City). In this area, merchants of the Empire trade items with passing players. It is a bit similar to the Auction House, however we allow for more immediate, perhaps more relevant trade. We allow for bartering, trading items for items directly. Within the earners of gold category, you may choose from two general career paths: Street Vendor, or Shopkeeper. The Government stakes no claim on the trade outside shops, however donations do help and are much appreciated, considering the work we go through to provide the market with buyers via our recruiting. However, we use the existing rooms or "shops" built into the merchant district itself to raise a more stable income of gold.

To become a Shopkeeper, you must buy a shop. Now it isn't technically the shop you're buying, but the claim of owning the shop by the Empire's government. If anyone attempts to use your shop without your consent, report them to us, and they will be put on the blacklist's list of minor offenders, and thus other merchants are discouraged from trading with them. This may not seem like much, but not only will the government provide you this claim, which admittedly is completely invalid, but your trade will also be supported by the government via the military. Ancient Rome used its military in times of peace to build roads, bathhouses, and other luxuries that were enjoyed by the Roman people, thus increasing the standard of living of its people. We take inspiration from this regarding the Empire's economy, and put our military's passion for the Empire to good use in this. The military may be assigned to replenish your stock or other such necessities.

The Recruiting Economy is based in the Cathedral Square and involves recruiting new members and hosting events for existing members, in order to earn glory for the Empire. It is the responsibility of recruiters to host such public events as hunts, races, dueling tournaments, hide and seek, war games, and other such celebrations. This earns the happiness of players which also earns glory for the Empire. It builds reputation, satisfaction, and membership. Recruiting events are the lifeblood of the Empire, and thus are the most important. More detailed descriptions of recruiting events and how to run them are below. Keep in mind that any member may decide to partake in recruiting at any time, not necessarily only recruiters. So encourage your friends to try it! It's the most important career in the Empire, and it does for me at least provide a sense of accomplishment, a certain pride in my abilities.

If they say something like "No" or they don't answer in about 10-15 seconds, then move on. If they say something like "Yes" or if they jump if you asked them to jump to join, then use REC3 However, if they are from a different realm with a (*) by their face, you will not be able to friend each other, and so simply tell them how much time until you start and where to meet.

II Manage time: Choose a time. If you are on at the typical 9 pm realm time, this time will be 10 pm realm time. Give yourself at least an hour to recruit. Choose a rounded hour or an "O'clock". When there are 45 minutes left until your run begins, click RGE1 on your action bar. When there are 30 minutes left until your run begins, click RGE2 on your action bar. When there are 20 minutes left until your run begins, click RGE3 on your action bar. When there are 10 minutes left until your run begins, click RGE4 on your action bar. When there are 5 minutes left until your run begins, click RGE5 on your action bar. When your run begins, click START on your action bar.

III Recruit people: Remember not be disheartened by declines. If you're going to give up at the first few declines, stop reading and give up now because you won't accomplish anything and this is a waste of your time.

Step 1: Go to Falconwing Square. Left click another player. Right click their face or "Character Icon" at the top left. Click whisper. Do not type anything, simply click REC1 on your action bar, while the chat remains activated. Left click another player, make an attempt to avoid clicking on someone you've already used REC1 on before. Right click their face or "Character Icon" at the top left. Click whisper. Left Click REC1 on your action bar. Left click another player, make an attempt to avoid clicking on someone you've already used REC1 on before. Right click their face or "Character Icon" at the top left. Click whisper. Left Click REC1 on your action bar. Left click another player, make an attempt to avoid clicking on someone you've already used REC1 on before. Right click their face or "Character Icon" at the top left. Click whisper. Left Click REC1 on your action bar. That is a total of 4 players REC1 is used on.

Step 2: In the chat box at the bottom left scroll up to the last person you whispered REC1 to. Right click their name in the chat bar, where it says To <Player>: with <Player> referring to the name of the player you whispered REC1 to. Click invite. Scroll up to the next instance that you used REC1. Right click their name, click invite. Scroll up to the next instance that you used REC1. Right click their name, click invite. Scroll up to the next instance that you used REC1. Right click their name, click invite. You have invited the last 4 players you used REC1 on. Left click REC2 so that all the players that accepted your party invite see REC2 in party chat. Type the number of minutes until your run starts in party chat. To type in party chat type enter to activate the chat bar at the bottom left, type /p and then press the space bar. An Example: the time is 9:11 realm time. The run begins at 10 pm realm time. Type 49 minutes in party chat. Another Example: The time is 9:33 realm time. Type 27 minutes in party chat.

Step 3: Right click the topmost players face or "icon" in your party at the top right. Click Add Friend, click Add Character Friend, or if you cannot click Add BattleTag Friend, or if you cannot add either, move on. Right click the next lower player's icon in your party at the top right. If there are no more players in your party, skip to step 4. Click Add Friend, click Add Character Friend, or if you cannot click Add BattleTag Friend, or if you cannot add either, move on. If there are no more players in your party, skip to step 4. Right click the next lower player's icon in your party at the top right. Click Add Friend, click Add Character Friend, or if you cannot click Add BattleTag Friend, or if you cannot add either, move on. If there are no more players in your party, skip to step 4. Right click the next lower player's icon in your party at the top right. Click Add Friend, click Add Character Friend, or if you cannot click Add BattleTag Friend, or if you cannot add either, move on. You have added each party member to your friends list.

Step 4: Right click the topmost players face or "icon" in your party at the top right. Click Uninvite. Right click the next lower player's icon in your party at the top right. Click Uninvite. Right click the next lower player's icon in your party at the top right. Click Uninvite. Right click the next lower player's icon in your party at the top right. Click Uninvite. You have disbanded your party.

Repeat this process until your chosen meeting time arrives, so that your friends list becomes filled with recruits.

IIII Perform the Run. Once your meeting time comes and you have accumulated a group of people, after you use START macro, yell a catch phrase, such as <Enter> /y LET'S ROLL! <Enter> or <Enter> /y LET'S MOVE OUT! <Enter> Now, go to the top of the webpage, and click on the left arrow on the left side of the Galleries section. Continue clicking the arrow until the Clockwork Recruiting Gallery Displays. Click the Gallery and follow the directions of the gallery. Pay attention to the picture descriptions above and below the gallery pictures but not the comments below the pictures as those are open to members.

Military Careers

The name may be a bit misleading to some. If you're really interested in solely fighting, perhaps joining or forming a team would be a better option. To be a member of the Empire's military doesn't mean you would be fighting all the time. You will some of the time, but the position is a position of honor and nationalism of sorts. The reality is building an Empire is hard work, and the military actually takes care of much of that necessity. It is a matter of getting done what must be done. Merchants who trade in the merchant district need stock and they don't always have time to gather it for themselves, and the Empire needs gold to maintain its members' subscription, to pay for services done, including paying some back to the military members themselves. Often soldiers will be sent on gathering missions to gather herbs, metal, leather, and other resources that might be considered valuable. We need to build our reputation positively in the eyes of the public, for the sake of combating any negative rumors or discontent that might affect our respectability as that affects our recruiting. Just as the Romans used their military in times of peace to build roads and public luxuries, so must we utilize our military to maintain and improve our glory and our standard of game play.

However, there do come times when the Empire is challenged, and the military must be ready to rise to that challenge. Whether it be by a team within the Empire, or by a challenging guild, the military must be ready to fight for its honor and the relevance of the Empire's banner; the unity of its people. Sometimes a team may indeed be a more practical choice in response to challenges by other guilds, but that doesn't change the fact that it is the Empire's primary Military, and it must be well trained and well prepared for combat. This often involves combat with teams within the Empire for practice in war games or practice in occupying npc territory for long periods of time.

The Military is divided into four tiers of command: Soldier (A single military member), Major (One for every 40 soldiers), Commander (One for every 400 soldiers), and a single General, who organizes and commands the entire military.

Military members are actually promoted based on rate of success in combat, not by election or selection by anyone. Data is collected from War Games. To promote a soldier to Major, the top 5 soldiers with the most kills in a war game of 40 soldiers vs 40 team members that accept the offer to be promoted are considered for Major. One by one they take turns commanding their unit in a grueling series of 8 war games each versus a team or cluster of teams that ensures the opposing team is always at max number of players in a 40 vs 40 battleground. This process may need to take place over several days, as each series lasts a few hours. The one who achieved the most wins out of the 8 (and the number must be at least 5/8, otherwise no one is promoted), or in the case of a tie, the applicant for major between the two or more with the shortest lasting game in which a win was earned becomes promoted to major.

In the process of promoting a major to a commander, ten majors must first exist and be active and thus 400 soldiers must also first exist. Then, each of the ten majors engages simultaneously in a war game with one another, 5 majors vs 5 majors, 5 war games at once. Each of the majors must email or message a screenshot of each score screen at the end of every game indicating the result of each battle. If they fail to do so, the war game they failed to submit the results for will be counted as a failure. The war games then rotate between the majors, so that each major gets the chance to fight each major in an even more horrible series of 10 games. This must be repeated until each major has fought each major 8 times for a total of 80 war games fought by each unit. The major with the most victories wins, in the unlikely case of a tie, the major with the most wins vs the opposing major, or in the case of another tie, the major who had the shortest game between them. If any major is found guilty of cheating for example by tampering with the screenshot, they are put on the blacklist for minor offenders and they are demoted to soldier, never able to be promoted again.

In the process of promoting a general, every 30 days the existing general must fight in a series of 3 war games with any 40 soldiers he chooses aside from said major's unit or said commander's entire battalion against the major or commander out of all the majors and commanders that exist (at least 2 battalions must first exist) that have the most reported war game victories.

The Blacklist

The blacklist is designed to protect our community (firstly) and defend our group's operations such as trade and raid groups (among other things). We do not encourage bullying in the slightest, our only intention here is to inform our members of danger. To file a complaint about someone, please send me a private message using the forums system at the top left, or send me in-game mail, whispering me is unreliable (Enkindle-Dalaran).

The blacklist has two levels: major (people who have cyber harassed our members and are considered by our groups deciding leadership to be dangerous individuals to our member's physical or emotional safety), and then minor (people who break our "trade rules" or "buildings assignment" and who we impose our trade sanctions on). Some minor offenders we encourage our shop keepers and traders to avoid trading with as they would otherwise cause damage to our economic system. However, we acknowledge the fact that it is the individual choice of any player who plays World of Warcraft who they choose to trade with.

Below are a list of dangerous people that have harassed members.

Team Saber

8 Team Points
A highly Gung-ho type group (attacks anything that it possibly can wherever it goes) Completely failed the stealth mission in wetlands, instead of sneaking to dodge the alliance they charged STRAIGHT into their base and every single one of their members died. I gave them points for bravery and let them keep previous points for high speed.
Members: Nejii (<Leader) Zhanfang Nystirrivale Hyungi Wailey

Team Soul Forge

Team Soul Forge has arranged a fascinating plot for creating a story line for the Empire once it has gotten on its feet. Its plans are shrouded in mystery, but one thing is for sure: they are ambitious and power hungry, and will likely stop at nothing to achieve whatever it is they're after. If you're into role playing the villain, then this cult-like Event group is for you. They'll forge a fascinating and interesting history for the Empire to pride and enjoy. To join you must use either a warlock, death knight, or demon hunter class, but they have no uniform requirements. The Soul Forge is further divided into racial sects: The Black Circle (Undead, Primary Leadership and Founders of the Soul Forge) The Felfire Clan (Orc) Insatiable Throng (Blood Elf), and The Chosen (All Races, but usually considered subservient of the main three).
Leadership: Soulcreed
Members: Gulkzar, Rulkhan, Endarken

Team Blood Wolf Clan

A group of renegades and aggressors, the Blood Wolf Clan celebrates strength and assertiveness, and is led by Pigheaded and Lokkazum (who are the same character). They'll be used as a plot device in the Empire's future story as well. It is an all Orc Warrior battle-group (PVP focused) that is also into role play and has a strict uniform policy for its members that revolves around black, red, and a bit of yellow. To make up for it they spend extra gold to supplement their warriors with enchantments and potions, even slightly boosting their starters using scrolls. The Blood Wolf Clan consider themselves pillagers and raiders. They hit hard and fast, but as they are all warriors, if you can withstand the brunt of their first strike a well prepared pvp team is usually able to defeat them. They are extremely aggressive and war-themed, and will attempt to challenge other teams as often as they can, usually making bets on who the winner will be. They also tend to hire themselves out as mercenaries. They'll hunt down their enemies and attempt to disrupt their events with duels, war game challenges, and stalking.
Leaders: Lokkazum(also known as the Red Flood), and Pigheaded
Members:
Leelanda
Drakonfotia
Akwotnot

Team Gemini

15 Team points
Nicknamed "The Survivors" because of their adaptability and self-sufficiency, Team Gemini, while young, has managed to overcome incredible obstacles and tribulations. Founded during a changing time in the Empire, when different types of runs were being experimented with, team gemini managed to stay intact through raid wipes (all of their raid members died), having nowhere to go for 30 minutes when I disconnected leading them, going through entirely new routes to the dragon, their competence and perseverance has been well tested and their members are considered top of the line.
Leadership: Sosaree
Members: Kenkaku, Brachas, Camistheman, Jheela, Nastrus, Rasmaea

The Darkened Blade
A reclusive and proud team of dark themed dreanei warriors and shadow priests (Using the darkest skin texture and going for as black and shadowy appearance as possible), despite the fact that they are Alliance, they are considered friends of the Empire and have a place among us. They hold close ties with the Soul Forge and are will partake in the Soul Forge's plots in the future. They are dark souls, mystical and mysterious, yet strong and proud in their ways. This dynamic group takes part in events and pvp, although pvp skills are not required. They also consider themselves a social group of outliers.
Team Hellfire Coven

The Hellfire Coven is a group founded by Councilor Lerolus, as of now it is planned to be directed to having world runs in the same way we do the dragon hunts- with higher level players. (level 25-50)
Leader: Lerolus
Members: (none yet)

Independent Members

Not all players recruited for the Empire have the best teamwork skills and don't want to be part of a group. The Empire supports independents membership by enabling their campaigns for wealth and/or personal glory within the Empire.

Empire Champions are characters that go on missions for the Empire and for teams of the Empire. Teams spend team points for the Empire Government to recommend a Champion to do a mission for them, however, Champions decide for themselves what missions they want to go on. If a mission isn't entertaining enough for a champion, they are likely not going to go on a mission for said team again. Champions might either be members of a Champion's Guild within the Empire or work for the Empire's Government or a Team directly. Champions also hold some political power in the Empire's government.
Empire Champions
(none yet)

Empire Mercenaries are players that go on missions for gold. They each have their own rates, but if you are interested in hiring an individual Merc they are listed below. However, Mercenary group Mercs are not listed in this window. Continue scrolling down to find Mercenary Groups that may have more consistent rates or performance than individuals.
Empire Mercenaries
(none yet)

Outside these independents there are Champion's Guilds and Mercenary Groups listed below. Keep in mind that the following groups are patrons of individuals, and if you need a raid to accomplish a mission for you, some teams may also work for money or glory with much more efficient teamwork.

Team Free Kingdom

An alliance team, Team Free Kingdom is actually based at an undisclosed location outside the Empire, and has made it their mission to turn the Empire and Empire City to primarily Alliance races. They are actually supported by our leadership in case the people decide they'd rather shift the Empire towards the Alliance someday, Free Kingdom is essentially an alliance version of us, with their own government, military, and economy, and is considered by the Empire's Government to be the leadership of the Alliance version of the Empire. Their main race is human as ours is blood elf, but they accept and support other Alliance teams into their fold.
Leadership: The Empire Government
Members: (none yet)

Shade of Teldrassil
Another Alliance based Team, Shade of Teldrassil are planned to be used as a future plot device like the Soul Forge and Blood Wolf Clan. They permit night elves and worgen into their ranks, and specialize in stealth. While they do accept all classes, they highly encourage their members to be either druids or rogues. The concept of the Shade of Teldrassil gives the illusion that, since you don't know where your enemy is, your enemy is everywhere. You begin to see your enemy hidden around every corner. They specialize in ambushing and scouting, picking off stragglers from target parties like some kind of horror film. Notorious for their assassination tactics, the Shade of Teldrassil is a force to be reckoned with.
Team Steel Mountain
An Alliance based team, team Steel Mountain heralds Dwarves and Gnomes of primarily warrior, priest, and paladin classes but permits other classes as well. Heavy invested in role playing and somewhat stand-alone, they have their own base in a mountainous region in an abandoned Dwarven fortress. Though somewhat smaller than other clans, the strength and innovation of Steel Mountain makes them a force to be reckoned with, they tend to travel in caravans and celebrate the multi seated Borean Tundra Mammoth mount as "Tanks". The missions of these caravans are often archaeological in nature, providing an opportunity for Starter Editions to travel to more dangerous areas for their discoveries. They often venture into very dangerous areas where they are vastly out leveled, and use their own unique strategy to keep themselves alive in fights they shouldn't be able to survive, involving rotating divine shields and taunts to keep the enemy always attacking an invulnerable target.
